Czech’d that box!

To say this summer was an amazing experience would be an understatement. I began this journey a little wary about how I would feel about such a big lifestyle change. There were still so many moving parts at the time; I didn’t know what people I would meet, what cultural differences there were, what my…

Remember Dublin?

Well, I’ve returned from Dublin and have settled back into my old routine pre-departure. Looking back on my time in Ireland, it felt like I was living a different life. I went from living and working in the city and traveling around Ireland on weekends to going right back to my job at Target and…

The Last Prague Week

As this was my last week in Prague, I was feeling pretty nostalgic. I definitely had less work to do this week which was most likely a result of my leaving within a few days. On Monday, we had our usual Monday meeting with the client and they finally gave us an answer about the…

Back home

It has now been exactly a week since I came home from Europe.  And the experience I had abroad was more meaningful and impactful than I could have ever imagined before hand.  Before I left for this program I was very anxious and worried about speaking Spanish in the work place and the pressures and…

The Last Week

My last week in Ireland could definitely be described as bittersweet. I would find myself getting sentimental over the strangest things—like reloading my LeapCard used for busing.

Success in the Czech Republic

I can’t believe how fast this trip has gone. This past week was my second to last week in Prague. Since my big Shoe Care video project ended and I no longer am responsible for the community management, I had significantly less work this week. I actually cycled back to a project I worked on…

Reflection

Alternate Title: ‘I’ve Had The Time of My Life’ playing softly in the background As my time in Germany comes to a close, I’ve had the time to think and reflect on my summer in Berlin. Overall, I am so, so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to not only travel halfway across the world, but…

Berlin, I miss you!

Over the past two weeks, after having physically (but not quite emotionally) adjusted to being back home, I have reflected on how my experiences in Berlin impacted me and my continuously developing views on the importance of being a global citizen.  In my time at Pitt so far, I have had two previous invaluable opportunities…

Final: New Chapter

I didn’t realize that two weeks have already passed since my internship and today is the due date of this post. I’m now writing this post on the plane to Chengdu from Shanghai. But seating on the plane and waiting for take-off for 1hr30min already, we were just told that the plane is unable to…
